FRESH PEAR CAKE

Pear Cake - TSLC

This Fresh Pear Cake recipe is easy to make and one you will enjoy many times in the future.

4 medium sized fresh pears, peeled, cored and grated or about 2 cups

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

12 tablespoons butter or 3/4 cup, melted

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans, Optional

TOPPING

1 cup powdered sugar

4 or 5 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk together flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.  Add melted butter, sour cream, buttermilk, eggs,  vanilla extract and pears stirring with a spoon to mix well.  Fold in nuts.  Pour into a well sprayed 10 inch bundt pan.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 60 to 70 minutes checking to make sure cake is done on the inside.  Cool for 20 to 25 minutes and remove from pan. Let cool.  Combine the topping ingredients mixing well and drizzle over cake.  Enjoy!

Note:  You can frost this cake with cream cheese frosting or even caramel frosting would be good if you don’t want to use the powdered sugar topping.  It would also be good just sprinkled with powdered sugar. I have posted the cream cheese frosting and caramel frosting recipes below for your convenience.

HONEY BUN CAKE

Honey Bun Cake - TSLC

This recipe for Honey Bun Cake is one you will make for friends and relatives over and over again.  My family can’t get enough of this cake.  I promise it will be gone before you know it.  Make it for breakfast to go with coffee or as a snack with milk anytime.  Keeps well in a cool place or refrigerated and can be heated in the microwave or eat it cold.  I think this is one of my all time favorites. This is great to make for breakfast if you have guests.

Cake Ingredients

1 box yellow cake mix without the pudding in the mix

12 tablespoon butter or 1 1/2 sticks, melted

4 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon almond extract

1 cup pecan or walnut pieces

1 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Cooking spray for pan

Topping or Icing

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

4 or 5 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine yellow cake mix, melted butter, eggs, buttermilk and almond extract and mix with mixer.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish and pour in the cake batter.  Combine nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle on top of cake batter and swirl into cake batter.  (I just use a knife and kind of swirl it throughout the batter) Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  Let cake cool.  Mix together topping ingredients.  (You can add more or less milk to the powdered sugar until you get the consistency you like for pouring)  Pour or drizzle over cake.  Enjoy!
